    2 Kings 18-19 Isaiah 36-37: same account of an event in King Hezekiah's life: How he trusted in the LORD GOD did what was right in HIS sight: the LORD defended him against the army of the Assyrians God sent the Angel of the LORD, Jesus, HIS Son to kill the whole army then when the king ran lived in Nineveh, God had the king's sons to kill him. Trust GOD HE WILL DEFEND you! IN JESUS, AMEN!

    The angel of the Lord is the pre-incarnate Christ, Jesus Himself!

    Verse 29~The Israelites may have wondered how they were going to have enough food to eat during this time, but God promised that he would provide for them. They needed strong faith in order to believe in that promise.

    Verse 35: King Hezekiah prayed to Jehovah God and God responded by sending his mighty angel to kill 185,000 of the Assyrian soldiers. God can save us in ways that we may never have expected.

    How incredable and awesome when we first came to God and believed Him to save us.

    He stand by his word if u trust in him
  • Georges Jean for verse 35
    Could it be that this verse was a metaphoric explanation for God's Power to destroy His enemies or was it a literal version of God's Angels? Whether this is a literal translation, I have to say that the numerical mentioned and the action are right.

    This is an encouraging scripture. Men may boast of what they will do but this chapter re***ures us that when God is in control He will accoplish His purpose. He is the Almighty God still in charge. That is why we need Him on our side in America today.

    @Thomas,
    Because both sections are telling the same story. In fact there would have been a problem if they were contradicting each other over the same story, but exact copy is not a problem at all.
    Now did the chronicler of the kings of Israel insert that section of the book of Isaiah in the book of kings? that we can not tell, what is true is that both books were written under God’s inspiration. And the exact likeness just proves the author is but one, God, with different writers, Isaiah and the chronicler.

    I would like to know why 2 Kings 19 reads exactly like Isaiah 37 word for word, does anyone know?

    How so wonderful that God can be found! King Hezekiah, at his wits` end, facing certain annihilation, sought God, and found Him, and God delivered him, in a supernatural way, and that was but a small thing for God. I believe with my whole heart that in these perilous times we live, a man or woman that desperately seeks God can and will find Him, and through this him or her, God can deliver many people who would otherwise with all certainty die from one calamity or the other. I know God does not delight in the death of anyone who has not yet known Him, who is still living in their sin.Oh how I earnestly pray that I will find God soon, and walk with Him as Elijah did, if only to be used of Him to bring salvation both literal (physical) and spiritual to others whom God is reaching out to!

    i think God is still the God Almighty. What He said He will do. When His children cried unto Him in truth, He hears and answer. That is the case of Hezekiah. He spread the letter and prayed and God used the angels and son of Sennacherib to slain the enemies of God
